Thankful for the rain last night, and happy to see the sun this morning ❤
About a month ago I was contacted by a very lovely employee of the LookBookStore.com, which is an online fashion store. Vanessa invited me to be apart of their “blogger program” to help promote a couple of their items. She was nice enough to send me two items for free to enjoy and review for you lovely birds out there! ❤
Seeing as the weather has taken a huge turn and we await the arrival of the snow, the items I chose were to keep warm, but stay fashionable at the same time 😉 . My first item is this “oversized” knit cardigan, now.. It COULD be oversized if I was 5’5″, being 5’8″ though, this is more just a medium-long cardigan. The sleeves don’t reach my wrists which doesn’t really bother me, the zipper is a bit on the cheap side, other than that i love this knit cardigan! ❤ I think it would be even more awesome if it had a hood! Just sayin ❤
This knit cardigan costs $42.00. You can find it here!
My next was my favorite thing on the entire website! Which is this WICKED “Black Faux Fur Coat”. I’m super excited to wear this for halloween, and throughout the winter! This actually keeps me pretty dang warm and fits me PERFECT. This retails at $86.00 & is sooo soft yet fierce!
You can purchase the coat here!:
I love love looove the products I was sent and I highly recommend checking out their selection! Thanks again Vanessa you were very well spoken and understanding to my needs and questions! x
Hello everyone! I have a decently sized e.l.f haul for you today! If you don’t know about eyeslipsface.com (e.l.f) it is “Top rated premium cosmetic & makeup products starting at just $1 and Free Shipping”. I know you can find these products at Target or Greenwalls.. ?? Which we don’t have either where I live so I just order online and its super easy! I will have all the product links and prices below for anyone who would like!
So starting with “eyes”, my personal favorite which I re-ordered is the eyeshadow primer i’ve mentioned it in a few of my videos on youtube and I honestly can’t see myself buying another eyeshadow primer. This 100% mineral eyeshadow primer is only $3.00 and comes in two different shades, I have “sheer” and it also comes in “blush”. This product works super great at keeping my eyeshadow on the entire day without any creasing. If I don’t apply this before my eye makeup my eyeshadow will crease within an hour, oily oily!
The “Studio Cream Eyeliner” hasn’t been very good to me however I do need to play with it more, the purple shade I ordered was suppose to be kind of bright and fun but it turned out to be a dark purple/brown colour so.. I don’t see myself using it much. $3.00
The “Studio Lash Extending Mascara” is just your basic mascara if you can’t find your main mascara lying around. The wand is pretty flimsy but you can gain extended lashes if you apply a couple layers, which I do anyways but this wand is a bit too flimsy for my liking. I will be holding onto it for emergencies though 😛 $3.00
My second favorite is the “Studio Eyebrow Kit” I got this in the darkest shade “dark” the brush it comes with the little hairs fall out and into the product and get all up in there, so I advise using your own brush you already have. If you don’t already have one, elf have lots of cheap brushes! This little kit was only $3.00, I only really use the one dark colour side.. not sure what i’ll end up doing with the other 😛
Next to keep my eyebrows in place I have the “Studio Eyebrow Treat & Tame” to just hold my brows down where I want them so I don’t have any flyaways! $3.00
For lips I only tried one product this time because I haven’t really been into wearing anything on my lips this winter for they are dry and sad 😦 Another sad note is i’m not huge on lip gloss’s because I always find them to be sticky and annoying but I thought I would give this a go anyways because it did mention something about being silky and being infused with coconut oil, however … this has got to be the stickiest lip gloss i’ve ever put on my lips. This will never touch my lips again.. I would even feel bad giving it as a present which I do with products sometimes that i’ve only used once. This however! NEVER AGAIN. I don’t know why you would want the link after that little rant but here it is for who ever wants to take a look, luckily this product was only $3.00 as well.
Next for “face” I’ve been very curious about this “Acne Fighting Foundation” since my last purchase before this one. It’s a lot better than the “Flawless Finish Foundation” and also the “Tinted Moisturizer” by elf. This foundation is wearable with a powder finish, without the powder finish it stays feeling a bit moist on your skin. This foundation is $6.00 so this is one of the more pricey items on eyeslipsface.com, I chose two shades because I have the Ivory in the flawless finish foundation but I wanted to see which colour was truly best for my skin tone. I haven’t even tried the ivory one because the porcelain one works really well with my skin. I also picked up the elf studio “Translucent Matifying Powder” in the shade “translucent”, I find this powder to not be completely translucent and does indeed give a coloured powder application to your skin. I still use it here and there though, not translucent though. Only $3.00 so I really can’t complain 😛
For brushes I just chose a couple that I already had just for backup because my stipple brush has fallen apart of couple times and it might be time to retire it. I really recommend checking out their brushes. Their essential brushes (eyeshadow brush & blending eye brush) are $1 each and their studio brushes (stipple brush above) are $3 each. Great for beginners or people who don’t want to spend $30 a brush. The three brushes above are my three favorites.. hence why I re-bought!
Essential Brushes $1 http://www.eyeslipsface.com/elf/brushes
I’ve noticed its time to get a proper brush shampoo because hand soap just aint doin it anymore for my brushes. So I picked up this brush shampoo for $3.00. “The Makeup Mist & Set” ($3.00) I’ve tried before and I found it smelt a bit funny after applying to your skin (probably the cucumber) However i’m pretty sure they accidentally threw this in the bag because I don’t know why I would have re-ordered this product when I already have a practically full bottle of it already! I have read good reviews about this product though so i’m going to give it another go!
Last I just chose a simple shiny overcoat nail polish from the “Essentials Nail Polish” line. They have soo many colours and they work well for a drugstore nail polishes, they stay on just as long as any other cheap nail polish and the variety is awesome! This one is in the shade “Twinkle Twilight” I have about 8 different colours from the essentail line! These run at $2.00.
I’m always loosing my nail files so I picked up a pack of three (image only shows two.. because what do you know, I lost one already!) For a pack of 3 is only $1 so you really can’t go wrong with any of these products i’ve shown you today! I hope you enjoyed this post and it’s helped you in some way!
Hello lovely people! I hope you are all doing well this afternoon<3 I wanted to let you all know that I now have a new page on my site! I’ve done some photoshoots in the past and have 3 of them posted! Would love some feedback on the page if you check it out 😀 xo
Hello lovely people. I apologize for not being as active as i would like to be. I’ve been procrastinating lately.. I have some sad news.. My grandmother passed away 2 days ago. What i have learnt from this heartbreak is that, i cannot be mad at the world for my grandmother’s time being up. I can only appreciate being alive and having the time with her that i had. If not for her i would have no place in this world. Which makes me extremely sad, but proud to be apart of my family that has chosen me through love and affection. I am sad for very many reasons, I am mature enough to not dwell and drown in my sorrows to feel sorry for myself. But happy for my life and the people in it.
I would like everyone who reads this to take a couple moments out of their day, busy or not, to call someone who you love and tell them that you love them 🙂
I never got a last chance to.
Here is yours ❤
Greetings human friends! I wanted to give a hello to all my followers out there! There are quite a few new followers and I welcome you with both arms wide open. So I welcome you to my blog and hope you have enjoyed your stay so far! My hands are cold typing this and I hope yours are toasty warm while reading.
Oh happy December I am so glad you decided to snow yesterday and today. It wouldn’t have felt like December without waking up to the fluffy white snow outside my cute little house that I share with my boyfriend and new cat – we just adopted (which I will be posting pictures and a blog about him this week!). If you’ve made it this far through the post i’m going to tell you a bit of a secret which is really the farthest thing from a secret now that i’m telling you …Well lets just break the ice 🙂 I’m baked as fok. I personally LOVE to smoke weed and drink tea & coffee, whilst smoking the ganja I love to explore blogs (which is how some of you found my blog!) I love seeing what other people are thinking, having the freedom to type out our thoughts for the world to see, for those who actually want to see, I find very fascinating. I can always find similarities in all of us, as different and strange as we may make ourselves from one another, we can always relate on some term. I promise you that. — So I live out in the mountains eh? Down by the lake, right. A country girl you might call me.. Or perhaps Kootenay girl would be the correct term.
Anyways this is getting out of hand and too many branches to climb so I thank YOU for stopping by and taking a liking to my blog! Please, I welcome you to be as active as you want on my blog! I love reading everything you have to say! I am always looking for a conversation and new things, so please feel free to comment and be active on my blog ❤ If you happen to be a fellow stoner please let me know! We can share stories and fun facts or other silly things and interesting music!
Bye for now!
Recently I’ve been on the hunt for cheap candles in glass container/wear and have found it rather difficult coming across candles that aren’t $10+. Unless of course you are at Dollorama which nothing is less than $3 but sometimes not what you’re looking for. Sometime last week I made my way into town, alllll the way to the Canadian Wholesale and have found these adorable $1.25 vanilla bean “starlytes”. They smell e-x-a-c-t-l-y like vanilla cake with Betty Crocker’s vanilla icing…. You know the one, and they come in these adorable “mason jar” looking containers. LOVE!
Over the past year or so, i’ve been experimenting with different drug store face wash’. I finally feel like I have hit the jack pot with this one! ST.Ives Naturally Clear, Green Tea Scrub, smells absolutely divine. It has a very mild scrub to it, and leaves your face feeling amazingly fresh and soft. It contains salicylic acid which is an acne treatment, which really does make a noticeable difference after washing your face. I’m pretty sure you can pick this up at almost any drug store & I will definitely be picking this one up again.
I got this argan oil for a christmas present, probably about 3 years ago. Which is absolutely ridiculous that I didn’t really start using it until last year. I did come across this product at Wall-Mart for only $10, and I believe that any human that applies heat or dye of any sort should have a bottle of argan oil. It is so unbelievably repairing for dry/fried, dead ends & damage of any kind to the hair. It really leaves your hair feeling healthy, with enough nurture for silky goodness! I brought this to Mexico with me last November and this helped save my hair from sun damage & all the salt water swimming can be harsh on your hair. I’ve been using it ever since. Also this bottle will last you what will seem for ever, I only use a drop ever time I get out of the shower. I do find if i use too much (over 2 drops) it can leave me hair feeling a bit oily, hence the argan “oil”.
If you come across this white tea & blueberry at the store, pick it up! It is sooo yummy! The only ingredients are filtered water, cane sugar, white tea, natural blueberry flavour and citcric acid. They also have just a regular ice tea which is also delicious. Random, simple and very worth trying 😉
I feel I owe an explanation for being absent and not blogging as constant as I would like to, for you and myself. I’ve got a bit of an update: I bought myself a gym pass and will be going 3 times a week, once i’m happy with my appearance and all toned up i’ll be posting before and after photos n_n I went on wednesday and i’m going again today 🙂
I haven’t had much to blog about lately becase i’ve been working 6-7 days a week 9 hour days, so I literally am not doing anything that is worth blogging about. Which has also kept me from filming, I want to make another video so bad, however i’m sooo worn out and want to be presentable and have the energy to get through these videos and make them worth watching. I have a couple things on their way in the mail.. i also will be getting 2 days off a week starting next week! So I will have hopefully more motivation to start filming again!
How have you all been? If you read through this whole post, please reply below with your favorite moment of this summer so far! Would love to get to know some things about my readers ❤
Alrighty my lovely birds and other freaks of nature. I feel i owe you an explanation for being so radtacular on the posting of this month, for myself and for yourselves.
Sooo, i recently got a job at Kokanee Springs where i was working last summer which none of you would know that for we have just “met”. So at my job i drive the beer cart (below ) most days
but also alternate to the snack shack on other days. I also have been doing a tiny bit of graphic work with Tofu Stravinsky this past month of May i recently designed a business card which i will be posting pictures of once they arrive! And i helped with a t-shirt design but i don’t want to take any credit because… Well first off i just added to it, and second of off i would have done it completely different. Which reminds me 🙂 I have a design i did which i am going to get a single printed and show them how wicked it is to possibly change their minds 🙂
So between the two of those that has kept me busy, i am currently shopping for my birthday outfit, shoes to be particular at the moment. I am going to be purchasing my first Jeffrey Campbell shoes EVAR. I am thrilled to be making money finally but i am having a little bit of troubles choosing what i want because i cannot find a review on these shoes i do want.. but im changing my mind and almost wanting something a bit more elegant and turning towards getting a pair of Jeffrey Campbell Foxy Wood shoe…
.. However i’m still making decisions.. decisions.. Seeing as i have until next Friday to figure out what i want to order! And they’re 5.5″ which hasn’t stopped me before but i would be.. 6’1 seeing as i am 5’8 1/2″ … and i don’t want to be giant over top of my boyfriend.. maybe i’ll have to get him a cigar and an old man golfers style hat… unbuttoned dress shirt with some chest hair sticking out hahahaha and some shady glasses.. But ya, so… That’s also one of my dilema’s.. i want them but i do want to be able to wear them with out being totally stared down because i’m giant. SO i am still up for suggestions even though i KNOW i won’t even get one reply over this post.. because you’d be amazing if you were actually reading this far into my post ❤ Soo yeah.. that’s all i can think of atm.. Check out my video below to see what i picked up at Dollarama! xo
